Grammy award-winning artiste, Diplo, has been included in the lineup of the 2017 edition of Gidi Culture festival.

The Gidi Culture Festival is set to hold on April 16, Easter Saturday at Eko Atlantic, Lagos.

Diplo is one the most in-demand music producers, having worked with Beyoncé, Usher, and Madonna, among many other music greats.

He is the founder of ‘Major Lazer’ known for their global hit single ‘Lean on’.

The world-famous DJ has sold out venues worldwide and has headlined festivals like Coachella and Ultra.

“Having Diplo headline alongside Davido and Burna Boy makes a statement for both the festival and where African music is today. This puts Gidi Fest on the international festival calendar and will increase the interest from other international acts to come to Nigeria,” said Chin Okeke, co-founder of Gidi Fest.

“We’re proud to have another globally recognized talent to thrill fun seekers with an unforgettable experience.

“This also shows that Gidi Fest is placing Nigerian entertainment on a highly recognized global platform by connecting international acts, through the festival.”

Diplo will join Burna Boy, Davido, Seyi Shay, Reekado Banks, Sauti Sol, Vanessa Mdee, Simi, Niniola, DJ Obi and DJ Neptune on the lineup of Gidi Fest.
